The Location

The Ross Caravan Park is on the banks of the Macquarie River alongside Tasmania’s iconic Ross Bridge (1836). The Ross Bridge is the third oldest bridge in Australia.  They also have a 4 star motel on site as well.

This caravan park consists of level powered and unpowered sites bordered by a beautiful old, dry stone wall with abundant shade trees adjacent to the Macquarie River. There are 20 powered sites and a similar number of unpowered sites

Sites are well spaced with drive through sites available.

Pets are welcome provided they are kept under control at all times and you clean up after them.  You will need to book early during the holiday season of December – March.

This review was submitted by NHQ on behalf of members Scoty & Sue. Ross Caravan Park is one of the best small parks in Tasmania. The new managers, Leonie and James, are great and will make you feel more than welcome.They have updated the amenities as well. We got the pick of the spots, with the river on one side right next to the famous Ross Bridge, we woke up to the sound of the birds. We stayed for 7 days and loved it. RVs, campers and caravans welcome. So if you go to Tassie, Ross Caravan Park is a must.



The new owner have only taken over in past few weeks and as friendly as you would expect in a small country park. They are trying to bring the park up to speed in that it needs some work done. But even so well worth the time to drop in and stay a night or two just the visit the town as everything is within walking distance from park.



A good location at the Ross village with pub and shops very close. Only two showers in the mens and ladies with a 2 x 20c coin box to operate (plenty of time to shower). Great staff and a very good location with lots of history to explore.



Stayed here the night in a Hiace campervan... choose an unpowered site as it was close to the river/bridge... very peaceful , close walk to stores & pub, well maintained and clean facilities, at least when I was there. Leonie was very helpful, loved my stay here.



It’s a great little park close to town well worth a couple of days, and the bakery’s are just........
